Chris Givens continues to turn heads this preseason, and did so with a 57-yard catch on Saturday night versus the Packers.
It was Givens' only catch of the night on two targets, but he made it count. Givens got free on a fly pattern when Sam Bradford sold a playaction fake and hit Givens deep over the middle, and ultimately set the Rams up for first-and-goal at the five-yard line. So far this preseason, Givens has caught four passes for 139 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Spin: Givens exploded onto the fantasy scene a season ago, recording five consecutive games with a catch over 50 yards. He has big-play ability written all over him, but that tendency usually means feast-or-famine from week-to-week. In year two, we'd like to see Givens able to prove fantasy value without needing to catch a bomb, but the fact remains that Givens can take the top off of defenses at any given moment. As of now, Givens is a serviceable WR3 with WR2 upside in standard leagues, but be prepared for boom-or-bust possibility each week.
